    Why Choose Dental Implants For
    Tooth Replacement?

    Dental implants have emerged as one of the most sought-after dental procedures for individuals seeking to replace missing teeth. When performed with precision, dental implants offer a swift and dependable solution, regardless of whether you need to replace one tooth or multiple teeth. Beyond their immediate benefits, dental implants also play a pivotal role in preventing long-term bone deterioration, a common consequence of tooth loss.

    In the realm of tooth replacement options, dental implants stand as the closest approximation to natural teeth, making them the preferred choice for those intent on preserving their dental structure as closely as possible to their original set of teeth. While dentures or bridges may serve some individuals, dental implants shine as the optimal solution. If you’re considering dental implants in Anchorage, Dr. Todd Miles and his highly skilled team are here to guide you on the journey to restoring the radiant smile you once enjoyed, with results that closely emulate the real thing.

    What Are Dental Implants?

    Dental implants are a mechanism by which one or more missing teeth are replaced by false teeth which are anchored to the jaw using titanium posts. The fusion often takes time, but the payoff is that the new artificial teeth will look identical to your own healthy, natural teeth. They’re not only good looking, though. Dental implants function just as well as real teeth, which means you won’t have to modify your diet based on your new teeth.

    While many feel that dental implants are costly, they can actually be a savings considering they are permanent fix compared to others that may need to be replaced every few years or so, such as dental bridges. Dental implants are the most permanent and smartest solution in the long run for missing teeth, making them a staple of cosmetic dentistry. Benefits of dental implants include the following:

    Though it’s not customary, some patients suffering from long-term bone deterioration may need bone graft surgery to adjust the jaw-bone properly to support the implants, or else the implants will be displaced in a very short time with the slightest amount of pressure or stress. Since local anesthetic is applied to the patient prior to the surgical process, there is only some minor discomfort and soreness during the surgical procedure. There are some temporary post-procedure side effects like inflammation around the operated area which can be taken care of with prescription drugs that will be prescribed by the dentist after the surgery has taken place.

    Implant Options

    Common Dental Implant Options

    There are different types of dental implants based on the severity of tooth loss and gum health. These options cover everything, starting from the dental implant for one tooth to dental implants for an entire set of teeth. All these options are viable and available under the care of Dr. Miles in Anchorage.

    Replacing One Tooth

    A dental implant is a straightforward and frequently used solution, often employed in cases where children lose a tooth due to accidents or when adults have retained baby teeth. This type of implant involves the placement of a crown tooth onto the implant post.

    Remarkably, the new tooth quickly integrates with your natural oral structure, allowing you to enjoy its functionality and aesthetics within just a matter of days. This straightforward and efficient approach to dental implants ensures a seamless transition, providing both children and adults with a swift and natural-looking solution for missing teeth.

    Replacing Multiple Teeth

    Dental implants for multiple missing teeth differ from those used for a single tooth replacement, as they involve a more comprehensive approach. Rather than placing individual implants for each missing tooth, the process begins with the creation of a precise mold that matches the contours of the gum area where teeth are absent.

    After the fabrication of the artificial set to replace the missing teeth, the oral surgeon strategically attaches three implants: two at the outermost ends of the crown teeth and one in the middle. This design forms a bridge-like structure firmly supported by the three implants, providing an effective and durable solution for replacing multiple missing teeth while preserving oral function and aesthetics.

    Full-Arch Replacement

    The replacement of an entire set of teeth in a patient’s mouth represents the most intricate and demanding dental implant procedure. Given the comprehensive nature of this endeavor, it necessitates the maximum number of implants, with an even distribution between the upper and lower teeth, typically amounting to 32 in total.

    This procedure is commonly sought by elderly individuals who are more susceptible to natural tooth loss associated with aging. By undergoing this extensive dental implant process, these patients can regain not only the functionality of a complete set of teeth but also their confidence and quality of life, ensuring a more comfortable and satisfying dental experience in their later years.

    Full Mouth 3 On 6 Dental Treatment

    The 3 On 6 treatment option is a dental restoration approach that strategically utilizes three dental implants within an arch, seamlessly integrating them with a fixed bridge that supports a total of six artificial teeth. This nomenclature, “3 On 6,” aptly reflects this innovative technique. The key advantage of this treatment lies in its ability to deliver a stable and secure solution for replacing missing teeth.

    By doing so, it significantly enhances a patient’s capacity to comfortably chew and speak, addressing not only the aesthetic aspect of tooth loss but also the essential functional aspects of oral health and overall well-being.

    Bone Grafting and Dental Implants

    In many instances, bone deterioration occurs within the jaw when a tooth is lost and no attention is paid to it until the time for a dental implant comes. To put it in simple words, bone grafting is the process in which grafting material is applied to the target area of the surgery by making a small incision in the gum and inserting the grafting material through it.

    Similar to patching a hole in a wall with plaster, the graft solidifies the hollow segments around which new cells are formed. Grafting materials for bone grafts come in various forms, the most common being animal or human bone tissue surgically processed for the grafting procedure. There are different types of bone grafting processes used depending on the condition of the patient to lay the foundation for dental implants. Some of the most common types of bone grafting procedures are autograft, allograft, xenograft, and alloplast.

    Care and Maintenance

    Dental implants, as long-term solutions for tooth replacement, typically require straightforward maintenance and do not demand specialized care akin to dentures or bridges. Preserving optimal oral hygiene is paramount, as gum health plays a pivotal role in implant stability. Nevertheless, immediate post-surgery precautions and diligent care are vital to safeguard the procedure’s success.

    During the initial days following implant placement, it is advisable to refrain from any strenuous oral activities, including vigorous chewing, to prevent potential damage or mishaps that could compromise the implant’s integration. By adhering to these early guidelines and maintaining excellent oral health, patients can maximize the longevity and effectiveness of their dental implants.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Your Essential Dental Implant FAQs Answered! From the procedure’s intricacies to aftercare tips, discover everything you need to know about dental implants in this comprehensive guide.

    What are dental implants?

    Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials like titanium. Surgically placed into the jawbone, they provide a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth, ensuring a natural look and feel.
    Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during implant placement due to local anesthesia. Post-surgery, any discomfort is manageable with prescribed pain relievers, and most people return to their routine within a few days.
    The timeline varies, but it generally involves a few months. Initial healing takes about 2-6 weeks, followed by osseointegration (implant fusing with the jawbone), which takes 3-6 months. Finally, the prosthetic tooth or crown is attached, completing the process.
    In most cases, dental implants are a viable option, but factors like overall health, bone density, and lifestyle habits can impact candidacy. A comprehensive evaluation by our skilled team at Delaney Dental Park will determine the best course of action for your unique situation.
    Dental implants have an impressive success rate, typically exceeding 95%. Success depends on proper patient selection, surgical skill, and adherence to postoperative care. At Delaney Dental Park, we prioritize precision and aftercare to ensure the longevity of your dental implant.
    Treating gum disease is crucial before considering dental implants. Our experienced team at Delaney Dental Park will address any existing periodontal issues to create a healthy foundation for implant placement, ensuring long-term success.
    Caring for dental implants is similar to natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings are essential. Avoiding tobacco and maintaining a balanced oral hygiene routine will maximize the longevity of your dental implants.
    Initially, a soft diet is recommended during the healing phase to avoid stress on the implants. As healing progresses, you can gradually reintroduce a normal diet. Our team will provide personalized dietary guidelines to support optimal recovery.
    Absolutely. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even support full arches of teeth with techniques like implant-supported bridges or dentures. Delaney Dental Park offers tailored solutions to address various degrees of tooth loss.
    Yes, dental implants provide a natural look and feel. The prosthetic teeth are custom-designed to match your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless integration with your smile. Many patients find that dental implants enhance both their appearance and confidence.
